Cranberry Orange Porridge

Today I’m comin at ya with another of my favorite flavor combos, cranberry and orange! I love them each on their own, but there’s just something about the tart flavor and subtle sweetness of the two together… It’s a match made in heaven! Plus, who can resist those gorgeous colors?! So I had to use them to whip up a warm and refreshing bowl of goodness to share with you lovely people. This recipe is the perfect winter breakfast (in my opinion) because it’s simple, healthy, and smells like Christmas! I also love the crunch and color of the fresh cranberries on top, and the unsweetened almond milk I used paired so well with it! I honestly can’t say enough about my love for this recipe, so you better just give it a try! Get cookin good lookin 😉IMG_9365IMG_9356IMG_9360IMG_9354IMG_9358
